Born And Raised
The Born & Raised experience is opulent yet eccentric. The decor is ornate, seemingly inspired by the roaring ’20s (think marble bar tops and servers in white dinner coats) but sprinkled with recent pop culture references. The menu also reflects that eccentricity with a 21-day Dry-Aged Duck to pair with an over-the-top dessert like a giant Chocolate Macaron emblazoned with the Wu-Tang logo. Come prepared to spend a pretty penny in exchange for one of the best food and beverage experiences of your life.

You’d expect a fine dining steakhouse to also do a fine burger, and Born and Raised does not disappoint. Using a 50/50 mix of ground aged and dry-aged steak scraps and a bit of bone marrow for a luxurious flavor and mouthfeel; only around 15 eight-ounce patties are available daily. Brioche buns are freshly made by sister restaurant, Ironside Fish and Oyster Bar. Drizzles of classic dressing, caramelized onions, and savory Gruyere cheese hit all the right notes. Don’t skip the house-made pickle; it’s a spicy, tangy palate cleanser.
How to order: Reservations are recommended. Walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
Stepping into this swanky steakhouse makes you feel as if you’ve gone back in time to the ‘20s, where tuxedoed waiters and stiff drinks await in an opulent setting. Photos don’t do this place justice: an Art Deco-inspired entryway reveals a regal mahogany dining room lined with camel leather booths, travertine-topped tables, and brass accents; upstairs, the open-air rooftop patio offers skyline views with a green marble bar, velvet banquettes, and a flowering steel trellis. Dishes are decadent, delicious, and unapologetically rich and flavorful: Mac & Cheese made with fontina, umami-laden Uni Spaghetti, tender Burgundy Snails served on roasted bone marrow. Meat is aged in-house in a 40-square-foot, glass-enclosed, dry-aging room, while a butcher shop in the kitchen turns out perfectly rendered bone-in ribeyes, tomahawks, porterhouses, duck, and lamb. Be sure to order one of the elegant dishes prepared tableside—like the Steak Tartare or Caesar Salad, which you can customize based on your preferences as it’s made in front of you.
